An absolute "must" for anyone interested in our origins,
This review is from: Alexander Thom: Cracking the Stone Age Code (Paperback)Robin Heath is clearly upset by the terribly unfair treatment received by Alexander Thom. Having dedicated his own life (up to now)to the search of the truth about WHY Europe is covered with megaliths, he is in a very good position to appreciate Thom's contribution to this matter.
In this book, he brings the wirey Scot back to life, making us feel his rugged determination, as, over 70 years of age, he carried his home-made theodolite across the windswept highlands of Scotland. We feel the presence of an age gone by,when the love of understanding was greater than the need for recognition. We also get a comprehensive summary, with many detailed site plans, of Thom's incredibly important work by someone who understands it and has even checked up on it.
As a "fitting tribute", we learn of Thom's legacy and the incredible discoveries his life's work has made possible.
Thank you, Robin Heath, for the quality of your study.
